Great game, probably the best of the year so far, I'd heard it was one not to miss, but wasn't quite sure what to expect! That last decision was pretty tricky, the tipping point on my utility curve is around £27k, but I have to say I was tempted to go on! I think either decision is actually justifiable, £100k is more than twice as useful to me as £26,400, but equally the drop to £5 is far from comfortable. But a 50% chance of £100k, how often's that gonna happen?

I'd probably have spent ages deciding and then slightly reluctant dealt, just like Haroon did.
EDIT: That's assuming I'd have got past the 5-box offer of £14,400, which I might not have done! :oops:


I liked his attitude to the game, he played it fairly astutely and the banker took a bit of a chance not offering at least something in the 30s to apparently would've taken a blue win quite well (I think he said it would've been a 'special fiver' or something to represent his great experience on the show).

Wow, great game, Really admired Haroon's steeley approach to the game.

Final offer was definately a toughie though i doubt i would have been prepared to risk going home with a fiver myself

Also I noticed that the opening offer was £7k after hitting 4 blues and "only" the £15k - is this 2005 again? :)

He went up by 50% after taking out £50k and £75k in the 2nd round???? :?

Haroon had made a remark in the intro that he wasn't going to be kind of player who would deal £7k at the first offer.

£1,400 more than the offer Les turned down with the next blue up, and caused forum shock in the process. And now the first thing people see after this Deal is that he was too cautious? Can I speak for the other 90% of the forum in saying that they do not speak for us?



Are 90% of the forum members sane though? :-D

You didn't see anyone complaining about Maryanne's game when she dealt for less than £3k more, with a decent £5,000 as back up - oh that's why, the £100k wasn't in her box!! :)

Didn't catch this one at all, but can't complain about the gameplay. Over £26k is excellent on that finish considering the blue was a banker's power 5. Just shame he couldn't have left a meaningful back-up!


Definitely agree with all of this - although I'd say 90% of the forum have some idea of the value of money, and can judge an offer on its generosity, rather than how much it was in comparison to the value in the box, and failing that, 90% realise this forum isn't a competition, and can admit they'd have undersold a box.

(Think I actually posted at the time Maryanne's game thread would have been very different if she'd had the £100k... :twisted: )

Watching this game, the offers weren't bad but weren't easy deals either, and I was disappointed when the £20k and £10k went in the final round as I think Haroon may have took a chance on getting the £100k if there was some meaningful backup - crashing from £26,400 to a fiver would have been a disaster, especially when you'd be lucky to get £20k on a finish like that. Still, I got the impression Haroon was going to leave 7 until the end anyway so he shouldn't have regrets there at least.

I'm actually very glad he won a significant sum as I actually thought he looked a bit like 1p Nick...

Well, he wasn't going to win £5 anyway, he was destined to win £73,600 more than what he dealt

But no-one knew that until all the boxes were opened!

Which leads it down to mismatching at the end of the day, I bet today's player will go to the end and then win a blue, making it so predictable :unsure

I still don't get the opinion that brave players deserve better boards than more cautious players. It would be saying like saying the top poker players in the world deserve better cards than an average one.

Actually it's worse than that. It would be like saying loose aggressive players deserve better cards than tight players.

It won't surprise many people to know that I'm a tight poker player (or try to be).
